Publisher's Summary

Your happiness and success depend directly on your "people skills" - how well you get along with others, and how well you really know yourself. Now you can use a remarkable tool for evaluating your own personality and the personalities of your friends, family members, clients, and co-workers. It's called the Enneagram, an ancient geometric figure that delineates the nine basic personality types of human nature.

Excellent. And There's NO REPETITION

I won't go on in great detail about this audiobook. My primary reason for writing this, on Dec 10, 2016, is to say that whatever was going on in 2014 as far as multiple repetitions is no longer an issue.
This audiobook consists of ten approximately half-hour segments, or chapters: a general introduction to the enneagram, and nine individual chapters, one for each enneagram type.
It's all narrated by Don Richard Riso; Mr Hudson does not make an appearance. And each of the chapters on the types is in exactly the same format, so the material is clearly laid out, and Mr Riso does an excellent job of presenting it.
I think this is the best audiobook you're likely to find on the enneagram, and I unhesitatingly and unreservedly recommend it.

Prepare to fast forward a lot.

What would have made The Power of The Enneagram better?

The book is split into nine chapters, one for each enneagram. Each Chapter last approximately an hour however, the first 30 minutes or so of each chapter is a direct repeat of the introduction to the enneagram. This means one hears the same 30 minute introduction nine times. I like to Listen while I drive so manually trying to skip past the introduction 9 time was very frustrating.

What could Don Richard and Russ Hudson Riso have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The content is good but the layout and presentation was frustrating to say the least.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

This book does give a good understanding of each type of Enneagram number and describes the best way to interact with each type. The content is good when it is new and fresh, but over half of the book is repeated 9 times.

Highly recommended read if your into self awareness

I have read a bit about the enneagram and this book, particularly in audio format helped me understand the types of a few people I previously would have found hard.

It's a great book on the topic.
